This is a 1980 Elke Bzdurreck pictorial map of Niagara Falls, Canada. Niagara Falls (split between Horseshoe Falls and American Falls) appears in the lower right, complete with a Maid of the Mist tour boat not far from the falls. Wonderful illustrations highlight the city's tourist attractions, including the Panasonic Centre (now the Tower Hotel), Marineland, and the Skylon Tower. Other identified sites, including the Burning Springs Wax Museum, the Boris Karloff Wax Museum, and the Serpentarium, are no longer in operation. The Rainbow Bridge, connecting the American and Canadian sides of the Niagara River, is illustrated and labeled. Before the Covid-19 pandemic, Niagara Falls reportedly attracted between eight and twelve million visitors annually.
